RCR Tomlinson in collaboration with Manildra Prop Pty has won an $85M contract to design and construct a major utility solar farm at Manildra in New South Wales, Australia.
The Manildra Solar Farm project will have a total capacity of 48.5MW. Under the contract, RCR will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the solar farm, including associated substations and grid connection works.
Paul Dalgleish, RCR Tomlinson managing director and CEO, said: “We are very pleased to have been selected as the key partner to deliver this significant large-scale solar energy project at Manildra.
“There continues to be strong growth in the renewable markets, and in particular solar, where RCR excels by bringing a combination of smart engineering solutions and an understanding of traditional energy projects that often includes high voltage infrastructure and network compliance.
“The use of our engineering intelligence ensures clients get strong performance guarantees and smart solutions at lower cost.”
Construction on the project will begin in June 2017 and is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2018.
